The wait in football purgatory looks over for Kevin Deery’s men at the Riverside Stadium after the Irish Football Association (IFA) provisionally scheduled Institute’s play-off against either Ballinamallard or Warrenpoint to take place this week.

The Irish FA have updated the NIFL regarding the timeline for the arbitration decision and have confirmed that the arbitration decision will be announced by Sports Resolutions UK today, Monday, June 20, 2016.

It means, Stute will either play the postponed second leg against Ballinamallard this Wednesday at 7.45pm in Fermanagh.

If, however, Sports Resolutions UK, find for Warrenpoint, the first leg of a two-legged play-off will take place at the Riverside on Wednesday, June 22, with the second leg taking place in County Down a week later.
